New Business

 

Popejoy began the meeting by reviewing the charge for the Committee on Committees, and then opened the floor for suggestions for nominations for committee vacancies; the following nominations were suggested:

 

Human Subjects committee has an at large position that still has one year left on the term which would replace Mark Sherman. Vollrath suggested Sandy Hutchinson from the College of Education. She has been on this committee before. A person can serve two years on a committee and then has to take a year off in between, stated Popejoy. We will need to check past minutes to find out if Sandy could serve on this committee again this year.

Vollrath also suggested Jerry Neal.

 

After brief discussion, it was concluded to hold off on the nominations for the Human Subjects Committee.

 

There is an opening on the Honors College Advisory Committee- S&T 2009 which replaced Mark Sherman. Loch stated that he would like to see a copy of the committee’s preference survey.

 

After brief discussion, it was concluded to hold off on the nominations for the Honors College Advisory Committee.

 

Popejoy stated that Cheryl Riley is asking that the COC find a replacement for Omer Frank on the Elections Committee as she has been unable to reach him. Popejoy stated that we will have to make a motion for to remove him from the committee, to be made to the FS,  and then make a nomination to the FS.

 

The next item on the agenda was the Triennial Charge Reviews for Faculty Senate Committees and University/Administrative Committees.

There was brief discussion on who would handle each committee charge review and it resulted in the following:

                             FS Committees:

 

·        Constitution and By-Laws Committee- No charge review to take place

·        Elections Committee- Paula Schaefer

Popejoy reminded everyone that the next COC meeting will be September 24, 2007 and the nominations for the three vacancies will then be dealt with.

Old Business

 

Popejoy began by asking for discussion regarding the suggestions made for nominations at the last meeting of September 17, 2007.

 

Human Subjects Committee, which still has an at large position open with one year left on the term, will replace Mark Sherman.  The nominations that Vollrath made in the last meeting were Sandy Hutchinson and Jerry Neal. Popejoy stated that Sandy Hutchinson has already served two full terms and she is not eligible. Vollrath stated that Jerry Neal is not interested anymore. Pratt stated that she would send an e-mail to the communication and psychology departments to see if anyone is interested. Vollrath stated that if no one else is interested, she would be willing to serve on it, as she is eligible when all other possibilities are exhausted.   

 

 

The Honors College Advisory Committee-S&T-2009 still has a vacancy which also replaces Mark Sherman.  Loch stated that David Ewing responded to his e-mail and stated that he would like to serve on the committee. A motion was then made by Pratt, seconded by Aldrich, and passed unanimously to accept David Ewing for nomination.

 

The Elections Committee needs to replace Omer Frank, since he is no longer desires to be on the committee. Popejoy stated that Omer will need to submit a letter of resignation. Don Wallace stated that Georgi Popov is interested in serving, as is Frank Wilson, who was suggested by Omer Frank.  Schaefer stated that the person should be very aggressive. A motion was then made by Pratt, seconded by Loch, and passed unanimously to accept Frank Wilson for nomination.

 

Popejoy stated that a motion form will be presented to the Faculty Senate for approval with all three nominations when all of the nominations are in.

 

Popejoy asked the COC members if October 1 was going to be enough time for the Triennial charge reviews. Everyone agreed that it would be enough time, and Schaefer suggested that the FS Office Professional send out a reminder e-mail.

Popejoy stated that the SPRC is not going to have the charge review, since it has already been done by Carole Nimmer and Cheryl Riley.

 

There being no additional business to discuss, a motion was made by Loch, seconded by Vollrath and passed to adjourn the meeting at 3:39 p.m.
